On July 30 our valued partners at the Verbier Festival organized a lovely day for the Martigny students and their parents as part of their 2016 program.
Once our guests had arrived from Martigny by tour bus, everyone gathered for a big picnic in the sun.
Afterwards we attended a concert by the Verbier Festival Junior Orchestra. The program included Daniel Lozakovich, a very young violin prodigy whose performance thrilled his audience.
When the concert was over, the children attended a musical workshop and then rejoined their parents for a major chess tournament hosted by Grandmaster Vladimir Kramnik, who expertly defeated all challengers.
Our guests from Martigny—large and small alike—went home delighted with their first experience of the Verbier Festival.
